Re: Fuel delivery issue, help!!

OE or Aisin would be my first choices.

I buy less and less from parts stores every day. Last cheap pump I installed got replaced 3 times in a year. One didn't make it out of the bay.

Re: New clutch - pull engine or transmission?

that might be helpful, but the trouble is really getting it to line up at all. you DO NOT btw, want to "pull" the engine to the trans by tightening those longer bolts. if something is not aligned you can cause severe damage to the trans. I have seen it happen where the trans case was badly damaged ...

Re: rear differential "replacing pinion seal" info/inquiry

Another method is to scribe a line accross the tip of the pinion shaft, nut, and driveshaft flange and put it back exactly the way it was. Red loctite on threads..

Re: My new truck with less than 1% plastic

Well it made the trip up north just fine at a whopping 7.8 mpg. Pertronix and carb rebuild really helped. Got the lower sides finished and hauled some dirt with it this weekend. PTO pump and lift cylinder held under load, and only engine idling did the job. Little scary first couple times I dumped! ...

Re: Parts to add in Air Conditioning, and power steering

A parts car or scrapyard will be your best and in some cases your only source of parts.

Re: Fixing Up Jenny

One way to judge wheel bearings is to hold on to the coil spring while rotating the tire. The spring amplifies any roughness in the bearing. I always use a stethoscope on the not completely obvious ones. What you hear from the drivers seat doesn't always end up where you thought it was. Had one that...

Re: My new truck with less than 1% plastic

Thanks 8ton! It still has the original 330. I did put new points in, but have ordered a Pertronix conversion this week. Used to just go to one of the many junkyards that are long gone and scrounge up a cheap Duraspark system, but those days are over. A lot got crushed during the scrap boom too. I st...

Re: A/C seals

UV dye or a leak detector(sniffer) would help. Sealants are best avoided, unless it's the last chance at a/c on an old beater that needs a labor intensive job or expensive/unavailable parts. I've seen pics of compressors and condensers that exploded due to sealants. If detected by a shop, they may r...

Re: Japanese Market Clinometer UPSIDE DOWN

Donor rolled over backwards during a hill climb and slid straight down?

Sorry, that's all I got, never opened one up. As long as it still functions, I would think an easy fix. Does it still work smoothly thru it's range? Was it right before it was shipped?

Re: My new truck with less than 1% plastic

The tires were a stressful event, but without incident. Seating the beads was done with 4 chains around the tire and then engine hoisted in to an empty dumpster, then filled with a long clip on hose. 20lb incremental fills up to 100 psi with a complete deflate between every step. Then another 100 ps...

Re: Fix, Sell Or Donate???

I have a complete carb you can use for reference, or if you are really bold, bolt it on. I cannot guarantee it is a working carb though. My spare time is in short supply this summer, so making a house call to try and fix it is pretty much out of the question. I can bring the carb to Aitkin county th...

Re: My new truck with less than 1% plastic

Had a funny idea for getting back home after leaving this thing up north. Put a T4 in back!

But, just to be safe, I will have someone follow me..

Tack welds before finish welding can help keep the heat drift down.

Re: My new truck with less than 1% plastic

7 or 8 going downhill with the engine off! Maybe 5 so far, but the ignition was in real rough shape for the ride home. Bad points, old plugs, worn rotor wobbling on shaft, and distributor hold down bolt was loose. Not too bad considering. I was expecting as bad as 5 to begin with. Even with the leng...
